|First off, let me apologize for my absence. There isn't a lot of activity on this site from the players and such and makes me lose my motivation. I believe with the SWCombine out there, players may see this game, become interested but then lose interest as it is not as fully developed as the Star Wars Combine. I get that. But the Combine has been in existence for over 20 years with multiple developers. I am only one developer and little motivation as a result of lack of interest.|
But I still have the spark! The last few months have been hard. My dad was very sick and 3 weeks ago he passed away. Things have calmed down a bit. I am not ready to dedicate more time to this. Like I said, I added 5600+ Planets to the game. Terrain is coming next.
As far as development of the game engine.. The CMS Engine is at version 0.75. I have been working on refactoring the code behind the engine to be quicker, error free, more secure and easier to read. Once that is complete, I can actually bring on extra developers to help develop aspects of the game if they are interested.
The plan for now is this:
-Get actual traveling working in some form with terrains and space.
-Get more faction tools.
-Transfer credits from and to factions and players.
-Improved initial battle system.
-Some force skills.
So we are not dead. We are always updating and doing something, even if slowly.
